Our excitement for Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ hasn’t abated since the announcement in May, or the world premiere of the pilot episode at Comic-Con 2013, though most new trailers and photos have shown us what we’ve already seen. That all changes with ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”s latest trailer, serving up a world premiere of new footage not seen in the pilot, we promise!
Beginning somewhat similarly to today’s earlier trailer, the new 45-second spot opens up with Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) bringing Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) up to speed on life after “The Battle of New York,” before launching into a mixture of new and old footage set to Stevie Nicks’ “Soldier’s Angel.” From what we can see, one of the subsequent episodes will take place in a jungle setting with plenty of gunplay and explosions, and a captured Coulson!
While we await the September 24 premiere, we know that Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ features a cast that also includes Ming-Na as veteran agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as hacker Skye, and Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker as science team Gemma Simmons and Leo Fitz. ‘Ghost Whisperer’ vet David Conrad and ‘Luck‘ star Ian Hart have been added for recurring parts, though details remain light on their scientist roles.
Samuel L. Jackson previously stated that he expected to be involved with the show in some small capacity. Both Tom Hiddleston and Sam Rockwell are game to reprise their Marvel Cinematic Universe roles of Loki and Justin Hammer respectively, something we’ve analyzed the likelihood of in depth.
Well, what say we all? Does our first look at episodes beyond Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ pilot tantalize even further? How do you think the first season will progress? Watch the trailer above, and give us your ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ predictions in the comments!
